Pentax Lens Tatoo

I've done a brief search of this forum and found nothing similar, but please forgive me if I missed it. I saw a picture, maybe a photoshop creation, of a guy with a tatoo of a pentax lens cross section. I was wondering if anyone had heard of such a thing or if you knew of a link to pentax lens cross section images. An example of what I'm talking about is here.

This is my first post. I hope I haven't put it in the wrong place or asked too obvious of a question, and if so please forgive my newbness. Thanks for your time!

Lens elements images

Have a look at this site.

Most lenses also have an image of the lens elements.

Yes, I saw that too. This guy is a dedicated 'Pentaxian'! It is here on the PentaxLife forum.

I just googled 'pentax lens cross section' and chose 'images' and got several hits, like this.

For easier googling, I think the technical name for such cross-sections are "optical formulas."
